Cricketing world reacts to AB de Villiers’ stunning catch to dismiss Alex Hales

South African wizard AB de Villiers has produced a piece of magic in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2018, taking a catch many cricket experts are declaring a contender for best of all-time.

After starring with the bat, ABD then shone in the field as Royal Challengers Bangalore beat Sunrisers Hyderabad in a do or die encounter to keep their IPL playoffs bid alive.

‘Mr. 360 degree’ helped land the crucial wicket of Alex Hales, saving a six as he leaped to a ridiculous height on the boundary before plucking the ball from the sky with his right hand — and somehow keeping his balance.

The stunner from AB de Villiers defied the laws of physics and only ‘Superman’ could’ve prevented the leather from sailing into the stands.

Cricket fraternity couldn’t hold themselves back and hailed the herculean effort by the Proteas superstar.

Here are some of the best tweets:
